Sunset, Montague Co., Texas, 1890. Drawn by T. M. Fowler.

Reproduction map of the community known as Sunset, TX, drawn and published by T M. Fowler in 1890. First settled in 1870, the name of the town was suggested by the postal authorities when the application for a post office under the name "Smithville" was declined, as it had already been used. Grocer Sam Smith, who had submitted the application, hoping to have the town named after him, accepted the name "Sunset" in 1880. The Fort Worth and Denver Railway completed a line through the town in 1882 and soon there were new residents arriving to take advantage of the tracks. This map captures the town as it was during its brief boom, with over 600 residents by 1900, the town included a canning factory, a school, cotton gins and two banks. Complete reference list below.

Features numbered references to the following locations:

1. Public School.
2. M. E. Church.
3. Commercial Hotel.
4. Railroad Station.
